1. Preparation: A Crucial Start

Light and Temperature : Keep your bouquet away from direct heat sources, drafts, and direct sunlight. A cool room will prolong their life.

4. Flower Food: A Little Extra

Use a Preservative : Sachets of flower preservative are a must. They contain nutrients and bactericides to keep the water clean.

5. Watch out for the Leaves

Remove Unnecessary Leaves : Remove leaves that will be underwater in the vase. They can rot and contaminate water.

  • Sugar and Vinegar : A mixture of sugar and white vinegar can be used as a food and a bactericide.
